is joaquin torres, with the work force development lead intion mayor lee's program look tog coordinate city resources both existing and new to serve our neighborhoods in need and to serve our small business commercial corridors. one of the things that has been so important to the mayor is making sure that we're attentive and listening to the streets and there is certainly no one better to know that than mayor lee who has been both our director of public works, then moved on to being city administrator, and now our mayor of our city. so, to make the announcement of this new program that will benefit merchants and small businesses up and down corridors like the one we're here on today, i'd like to invite further direction, mayor lee. thank you, mayor. (applause) >> thank you. it's great to be out here in sunset out in irving street. i should come out here every week, the dpw folk are cleaning the streets pretty well. [laughter] >> it's great to see all of you here today. you know, earlier this year, particularly during the budget negotiations, supervisor carmen chu and i and a number of other
in the city. we new he had to make sure that our students that are growing up in the city are able to access those jobs because they're graduating college-ready. i want to be clear when we talk about a through g i hear the debate not all kids have to go to college and i agree but all of our kids have to graduate ready for college because you graduate ready for college you're able to access living wage jobs and if you don't have math and science classes that are required a through g you're not going to be able to go into apprenticeship for building and trade programs. so this is an important policy for the city. unfortunately with our first two classes the level of cuts that they've been experienced has not allowed our school district to fully support the program that is needed to do that. i think, also, with our city passing really the highest budget that we have seen in our city's history i think it's more important than ever that we really step our support for your families and our kids. that being said i think that there are a lot of conversations in kind of moving targets as we're findin
're not the biggest employers, but they do hire the largest number of employees. over 51% of the city's employees are hired by small businesses. and i want to continue supporting them, nurturing them, have them increase. i hate seeing vacant, vacant buildings, vacant spots. benny knows every time we walk down there, what's going on with this site? what's going on with that site? char men chu knows that as well. we've done a lot of walks together. i want to see every one of these vacancies filled with small bustling business necessarition. we need them to hire more local folks. and one way to do it, one sure way to do it is to make sure that they meet the a-d-a requirements, the federal requirements, the state requirements, our local efforts to make sure that those that have disabilities can also shop and be a participant in our local economy. so, with that, joaquin, thank you for your leadership. we get to launch this wonderful program right here. there are three streets in district 4 that are going to benefit from this. we're going to roll this out to all other 85 neighborhood corridors in the r

businesses to deal with a-d-a access issues. and i think this is sort of the next big step that the city is taking to make sure that we're supporting our small businesses in a very direct and hands on way. with this pilot, i am proud to announce that we have over $08,000 that will be going to this district to help with cast inspections. these are basically inspections of businesses to say what it is that you must do over a period of time to become compliant with a-d-a requirements and rules. and these are things that will really help our blitznesses weather any lawsuits and really plan to make sure their businesses are accessible to all san franciscans. so, today i'm very proud of that. we're going to see over 30 businesses be able to have a casp inspection. that is a very meaningful piece to be able to help them weather some lawsuits if they should come down the pipeline. in addition to that, we expect to see $70,000 in actual physical improvement grants that will be coming into the district as well. and, so, i know that the mayor will be looking very intently to see how this program wo
on october 25, about 10 buildings in the civic center area evacuated including city hall, the department of public health, and the war memorial building. as part of the evacuation drill, an ada portion the place as well where buildings that had to evacuate people with disabilities and use the evacuation chairs. the activity went well but it highlighted some areas of further staff training with the mayor's office and disability will follow up on. update on the planning efforts on the golden guardian, disaster exercise in may 2013, there was discussion to establish a timeframe from the project and further develop the deal for including participation of people with disabilities in the exercise. one of the main objectives of the exercise was to see how effective -- the shelter plan will work. there was discussion of the committee to limit the scope of the exercise for best results. we discussed the fema innovation challenge grant. we propose to project to develop a disaster preparedness plan. mld will be dubbed five the results by the end of november. finally there was a lively
that their intention is to come to the city on a one-time basis but this is only funding source for half a year. and so hypothetically in the year -- the school district would have to pay for an annualized expense ongoing, year after year. so i think that we don't have an answer from the school district about what their intentions are. nor do we have really the answer from the san francisco unified school district about how they prioritize this in light of some of the other budget priorities that they may have. so i think we would benefit from having a continuance, but i do think these are very important questions to ask before we make this decision. so again i want to thank supervisor kim for the continuance. i do think that the cause is a worthy one. i think having credits that kids can catch up on is a good thing to have kids be able to graduate from our school district. but i think it matters about how the school district intends to prioritize this in their own budget. i think it matters about how they intend to continue supporting this in the long run. thank you. >> president chiu: supervisor elsb
as a continuation award. so, in 2009 the city was awarded under the same grant category to encourage arrest policies, and that was awarded to the san francisco district attorney's office. the original applicant at the time was the mayor's office of criminal justice. in the 2012 fiscal award announcement where we have applied to tailor our grant awards specifically to follow the assessment, it was indicated that a law enforcement entity could not be the lead applicant. our communication with the mayor's office and the department of status of women appeared most appropriate for them to be lead applicants. so, you'll see within the materials that the grant award is extending beyond our march date, which was actually when we completed our close out package with the federal government. when we completed our close out, the district attorney's office used our general funds to support the staffing positions that were no longer funded through the grant at that time. we have current requisitions at our business that we utilize to hire new positions in to support those grants. i'm happy to answer any questions
about two city blocks bounded by the embarcadaro washington street, clay street and davis street, and it's bisected by drumm street. in 2004 rec-park led a [speaker not understood] for sue bierman park. at that time the community did express interest in including a playground, but there was a ordinance that prohibited structures including play grounds. so, this group, the friends of waterfront playground, they worked with supervisor david chiu's office and supervisor chiu in october of 2011 introduced legislation amending the ordinance to authorize the construction of a playground on portions of the park. this legislation was passed by the board of supervisors in november 2011. so, at that point the friends group engaged rome adi sign, which was the landscape architect that had helped design the master fit plan for the park * and they led a community process to design a new playground for sue bierman park. the proposed playground is approximately 5,500 square feet. it is carefully nestled into the park land. it is designed for children 2 to 12 years of age with a mix of equipment for yo

of outstanding service to the small business community to the whole city. and the roster is growing of many different businesses from cynthia huey's feed store, a great vintage clothing store, to park life gallery, to green apple bookstore, one of the last remaining independent bookstores in our whole city, and where you'll find me browsing in the used book section upstairs often, or my daughter in the children's section as well. i know -- isn't here but tremendous leadership from foggy notion with anderson on 6th avenue to kisha studios and many others. i wanted to say in the past few months my office has been working closely with cynthia and jamie alexander from park life as well to reinvigorate the merchants association with long time leaders like jesse fink, but to bring more visitors to clement street as one of the city's destination spots. one of the great examples of events that's coming up with clement time in about 48 hours we're going to be celebrating from 5:00 to 9:00 clement time which brings many new people to the richmond district on clement street but also highlights the gre

+ç 11 pm seven days a week. the marina green is used by hundreds of little kids from all over the city to play soccer. making it efacto the largest playground in the city. it has always been the city's policy not to allow alcohol in a public playground. these kids have not shelter from the weather, or restroom facilities. a much more sensitive use to the environment and community would be to use the degaussing station as a clubhouse for the kids so they have shelter, restroom facilities, and a place to store their equipment. if rec and park doesn't want to pay for it, even though they just received about $200 million, i would be willing to fund it myself as a contribution to the city. i'm looking for six votes here. who want to put the environment and the welfare of the children ahead of the dollars of a restaurant lease. do the right thing. and vote against this restaurant lease on december 4. and with all due respect, supervisor farrell, i ask you again, with the association, with the hospitality industry, and$á( mz your own father pitchg this restaurant, do the decent and honorable
at the board, after a very important election. and the results that have moved our city forward in the right direction, from the payroll tax reform to housing, to taking care of our parks. i appreciate your advocacy and your commitment to san francisco. because of our collective efforts, san francisco voters were able to make a very thoughtful choices at the ballot box this past couple of weeks, that have helped fund infrastructure, move to job creating tax policy, and invest in critical housing needs in our city. collectively helping san francisco families and businesses. with that i'd like to take your two questions, supervisors. thank you. >> president chiu: thank you. our first question will be provided by our district 6 colleague, supervisor kim. >> supervisor kim: thank you and congratulations on your leadership on the propositions we passed a through e. in our district we've gotten many e-mails and questions about this but something that hasa uát up with our resident what are current procedures for recouping cost for street closures. specifically, what costs are being reimbursed to t
h so we could ask the city to spend a morgs of our tax dollars to enrich our public schools. i know as a policy set asides are a controversial issue and agree they tie hands of legislators and city officials in how to prioritize budgetary dollars but we heard affirmative support from voters saying they of those dollars will go into our public schools, starting at 10 million and going up to 60 million. as a school board member i try to visit all of our schools and i visit schools almost once a week during the school year. and i can't tell you what an incredible impact proposition h has made in our schools. you actually see libraries in elementary schools, that hadn't been open in years, they didn't have librarians to put books in their proper order. you started seeing art classes being brought back to middle schools and sports and pe brought back to high schools that had formerly been cut. we were able to fund more counselors and many other things. i think this fund is incredibly important. but as you know over the last five years the city has also experienceexperienced deficits. bec
it is technically illegal to be naked in city center plaza which is a park. in addition this legislation has no application at all to beaches, or of course to private property. the castro and san francisco in general is a place of freedom, expression and acceptance. but freedom expression and acceptance doesn't mean anything goes under any circumstance, itw doesn't mean that we have no standards whatsoever of behavior. freedom, expression and acceptance don't mean that people can do whatever pops into their heads, no matter what the impacts on others or on the neighborhood. as a result, i introduce legislation to extend a narrower version of our existing nudity plazas, parklets and public transportation. to acknowledge that our public spaces are for everyone, and that, as a result, it's appropriate to have some minimal standards of behavior so that everyone can enjoy these spaces. this legislation and the issue generally has generated significant and intense debate community, and in the city as a whole. i don't pretend that there's unanimity around this legislation. there are strong views, l
-to-day challenges of a city, and of neighborhoods. and some of those are monumental and some of thosegqjatç are very mundane. and as a district supervisor, you can only imagine if i, or any of us were saying i'm having trouble getting this pothole filled in front of my house, can you please help me. and if you responded and said well let's see, if i have to fix muni and get all the help for all the mentally ill people in our city and close the achievement gap and help all the small businesses that are struggling in this city, do all of those things, and then when i'm done, i'll get to your pothole to be filled. i have a feeling your constituent probably wouldn't respond very positively to that. the fact is that we deal with a whole gamut of issues at this board,>(( úñ large to small, and the large are not to the exclusion of the small. the fact is that this is a real issue. and i think, colleagues, you'll know that you can love or hate the legislation i proposed, but i work on a lot of different issues, large and small,k$%($$ao all of you. i want to respond to supervisor campos' suggestions this i
language, or english as their second language. i believe that, as a city and as a member of the board of supervisors, we need to give this population of students additional courses, and an opportunity to invest in enrichment programs that can help some of the students succeed in school, if not all of them. additionally in reviewing our end of the year budget, and revenue projections, it's clear that our city is in much better financial position than we were a few years ago. and i believe that with the reduction in the supplemental that it's reasonable and within our means to support this request. thank you, supervisor kim, for your leadership on this matter. i would also like to stress to the school district leadership that's here that while i know you have -- that while i know that you have had to... contend with significant budget cuts just want you to know that we are supportive of you and watching and paying attention how you will account for these needs and costs for the budget process in the upcoming year. i will be supporting this item but not the use of rainy day fund to suppo
forward, because it is clearly a priority for the district and for the city, and, ñ the same time, be fiscally responsible. and so our preference is to move forward with the supplemental that would use rainy day and peef baseline funds. and not use any of the state supplemental reserve. none of the options we're talking about includes the rainy day. so would the mayor support or not support any of the three options that we are talking about right now, through the >> supervisor, jason elliott mayor's office, through the chair to supervisor campos. this has been an issue that's been debated and talked about for several weeks now. as the proposal involves fund sources of both and the conversation that budget director howard and deputy superintendent me young lee has been centered around using the rainy day reserve funds which are available, and on using a peef balance which has grown a bit in recent days. so combining those two sources, the rainy day money and peef money does actually total up to the amount requested. so your question to us, as i understand it, is what is the mayor's
cities. los angeles, san diego, new york to look at how they are provided budget analyst services. so, i think it's from the comfort of actually having a contract that you could then further direct me to provide that information to the committee. >> okay. and if we were to go forward with an rfp and eventually that rfp would have to come back for approval, could we have it be flexible such that if there was a decision by this body at a later time to actually do a contract, any type of proposal we would be flexible enough to make sure that contract is not existing at the same time as we bring in folks? >> yes, supervisor chu. there is currently in the contract the ability to cease contracting with the joint venture at the board's convenience. we would, of course, have something in the new contract once approved for that same convenience for the board should they choose to go in that direction. and, of course, we would dovetail service -- we would allow for the dovetailing of services to occur if the board chose to bring the house. >> okay. for this item, i'd like to hear from my colleague
predecessors passed a law that made san francisco a transit first city. here we are 40 years later talking about removing a bike lane because there are too many private automobiles that will be going around looking for parking. we're not talking about doing initiatives to improve car share or the hundreds of people who will not have to use a car because of these bike lanes. we're talking about removing a bike lane for private automobiles which is so profoundly idiotic. i think it really boggles the mind. the last point is really to reiterate what i told mta board which is that we're living in a time -- crisis this is a time when we need bold action. we don't need two and a half years of looking at six blocks on fell and oak. we have other cities laughing at us, chicago, minneapolis, portland, new york. i encourage you to reject the appeal. thank you. >> president chiu: walter, his you've already participated in this public comment. no, you can't, actually. thank you. are there any other members of the public that wish to speak in public comment on behalf of the project sponsor? okay. why d
, this past year alone, a lot of the small businesses actually have to move out of the city because of people doing drive-by lawsuits. here at the good will industry we are very grateful and one of our mission is to help people to create job opportunities for people who come here and work. so, one of the things that we care for is creating jobs in the city and preserving jobs in the city. so, last year we were able to have about 7,000 people just to come by and to shop for us and to provide job opportunities and training opportunities throughout our missions and our [speaker not understood]. once again, i want to thank the mayor and carmen chu for helping us to get this funding. thank you. (applause) >> thank you all again so much for coming out. as you can see, this is a team effort so we can have the most and strongest collective impact in corridors like these and like the one investing in the neighborhoods program. i know the supervisor was very excited to get this program up and running right away. she'll be joining with the job squad member who has recently come onto the investing neighb
businesses also contribute to 52% of the total sales of taxes paid by businesses in the city. it's also important to note for every $100 spent locally owned independent businesses generate $68 iní%( z5 local economic act, and that compares to only $43 by the national chains or chain stores. joining the small business commission, office of small business, and our local partners, women impacting public policy, the san francisco chamber of commerce and sf travel, i wanted to urge everyone to shop locally during this holiday season. and we wish everyone a great and your holiday with your family friends and loved ones. i also wanted to invite people out on thursday, december 6, that's thursday, december 6, in the evening for our annual clementine, join the merchants from the green apple bookstore to park lifee÷jc- gallery and fy notions small businesses like foggy notion as we celebrate the holidays with our great clement street businesses. thank you. >> clerk calvillo: thank you. president chiu. >> president chiu: first of all i'd like to adjourn today's meeting in recognition of the pass
engagement proddle that involv involves -- making decision on fund. after being started in the city of porto al egg gray in brazil the process has beenx$jpm adopy 1500 cities and municipalities worldwide including by several municipal awards in chicago and new york. today i'm launching a participatory budgeting pilot program to give residents the power to decide how to use this discretionary funding. my office will be partnering with the controller's office, and the right to the city alliance to implement a four month process to engage residents, neighborhood groups and other community stakeholders in dialogue and to vote on proposed projects. i'm interested in bringing participatory budgeting to san francisco because increased civic participation will help make our city -- allow our city to make better investments in our neighborhoods and empower residents to get involved in our democratic process. colleagues if you haven't get figured out how to spend your discretionary funds i invite you to join us. i look forward to working with our partners and the public to create a vibrant and effect
association. i would like to reiterate that yeah, we were involved with extensive outreach that the city put on. and during all that outreach, members of the community were invited to weigh in on various options, and elements. and the solution that was eventually approved was something that we were in favor of, which included minor alterations to the existing conditions that namely traded parking for safer travel for bicycles and pedestrians. so with that in mind, we support planning department determination of the project's exemption because the appeal does not support our neighborhood's need for improved safety for the residents, or visitors coming into our neighborhood. and this project is very important. it does serve our neighborhood significantly. in fact, delays to this project would be harmful to our safety and we're quite concerned about that. so we urge you to always uphold these type of exemptions because, you know, this is how we are able to make improvements to our neighborhood. thank you. >> president chiu: next speaker please. >> good evening, supervisors. i'm elizabeth stampe
of the city. so and so i'm still trying to understand what is so unique and so different about what's happened that we need this now, even though for all these decades that has not been the case. and the second point is i want to be very clear. i don't know that anyone is saying taking care of the little things that happen in a neighborhood are not important. those things are what make the life of a neighborhood work. the pothole is as important as any piece of legislation because it is critical to the daily life of that individual. but what we are saying is that if i have a pothole in my neighborhood, i am not going to come to the board of supervisors, and pass citywide legislation to address it. the question is whether or not this legislation, this citywide ban, is the best way to deal with this serious situation. some of us question whether or not it is. and so that's the difference. but to say that somehow that means that we don't care about the nuts and bolts of what happens in a neighborhood, that is not the case. it's simply how you address it. >> president chiu: colleagues, any further
incorporating all the input that comes into the city that people in the psac, we should be doing our own individual -- we do that when we submit a report to the board of supervisors but we can spend time actually pulling things together, looking at the data which may or may not come from the organizations in the city, and pull that together and make recommendations on a continual basis to the board of supervisors and meet goals that we want to meet with regard to pedestrian safety in the future. also i have a feeling that -- and again, i walk a lot and i'm always observing things -- that we really have to develop a comity between cars, bicycles and pedestrians. we can't isolate one from the other, we have to incorporate all in the mix and i think if we do that, it's not an easy task but if we concentrate on reaching that kind of a goal i think we can make pedestrian safety really an outstanding feature of life in san francisco. thank you. >> okay, thank you so much for being here again today and also we really appreciate your patience, mr. bloomberg, i know you have been very ac
city where we want people out of their cars. not only do we need to shore up what we have we need to expand service significantly. now, funding is not muni's only challenge. we need continued work reform, salary efficiencies, implementation of the transit effectiveness project, and mta is moving in a good direction in those areas. but muni's chronic severe underfunding is a key part of muni's challenges. we're at a crossroads in san francisco in terms of investing in our system, and to be frank, we're not meeting that challenge. and what i seen is that when it comes to any funding place, muni loses. it is not high on city hall's priority list for funding. and hundreds of thousands of people who rely on muni every day lose as a result. we see this in various ways, for example the free muni for youth debate is one example. the school district reduced its own transportation program and the city decided to make up for that cut by providing free transit. and where did that money come from? it came directly out of muni, not from another source, not from the general fund, it maim from mu
's hard to imagine why an 800,000 ask is that much from the city, to go towards the program that's really going to help our juniors and sophomores graduate on time. of course the budget is always a choice. we're always making choices. and when we choose to fund this, we may not be able to fund another thing. i get that. and we're making a decision now when there might be other asks in the future. for me the answer is simple. i will always choose schools. they are one of my top priorities. even when you look at our prison system for example, just in san francisco county jail alone 75% of inmates didn't graduate from high school. like what can we do to prevent that number from increasing. it's to graduate our kids from high school. this 800,000 is not a lot. it's modest for what we're trying to do. it will help enrichment programs to keep our kids in school. and the other thing i'll say is in regards to our school district, over the last few years, for the first time in over a decade, the school district has actually been reversing the widening achievement gap. and i forget what year it sta
, for my justification as to why i think we need to do this, i do not ask the city attorney to prepare the written language because frankly untangling it would have led toé a -- manner and the intent here is to offer an amendment that would replace the proposed language back with our current language so that all nonprofits will remain exempt from this tidf fee. that is my motion. >> president chiu: supervisor elsbernd has made the motion as he's described. is there a second to that motion? seconded by supervisor avalos. campos. >> supervisor campos: thank you very much. i want to begin by thanking supervisor wiener and the mta for taking on this issue. i agree that this is something that has to be looked at, and i don't know that i have any disagreement with the general principles and concept that has been laid out. you know, we wantqqjyv everyoneo have -- take some responsibility for the impact that they have and their projects have on transit. the issue for me is not so much the substance of what's before us. i may very well agree with what we have before us. but the question is wha
is the city establishing support for new cdfi's? >> mark wanted to address that, in support of cdfi's in the city. >> we have a wealth of partners in the city. s.p.a. is just now rolling out a program for r -- will be the case by the summer. let me get one last point and on the question about relationships to lenders. the question was, do have to have an account with a bank in order to get a loan? may answer is no, but the real answer to it is certainly want to do that. one of the things we see as an important thing for you, as a small-business person to establish a relationship with a lender on a variety of levels before you look for funding. part of that is opening an account with them, letting a lender know about your business, understand your business, talk to them as you are growing your business. when the economy is strong, all lenders are shopping for transactions. in times are tough on credit, you want to rely on those deeper liberation ships with your lender. you want to develop a relationship with a lender. it is the case where you want to open up an account, while to have
metropolitan cities in the country and you talk out of this beautiful room and building and you walk to the streets and see the equipment that the residents and visitors of san francisco is riding on, it is almost shameful and it needs to be addressed in a big way and all of the plans up there for the future of the railway, none of them include rest room facilitis for our members and our operators, we have over 50 locations that have no rest rooms and a lot of this funding should be addressing those issues as well. because, once again, you could put together all of these plans, in a blueprint, but if you don't have the equipment and you don't have the operators to move the residents, the riders and the visitors of san francisco then you have nothing at all. thank you. >> thank you. >> very much. is there any other member of the public who would like to speak, please come forward? >> good afternoon, executive vice president of the transport union, local 258. just to go off a little of what my colleague just mentioned the rest room facilities, we have over 40 percent of the terminal st
